Mankind Are: What Has Been Taught, Believed, and
Practiced...the total of our experiences.
How many times have you heard it: "Role Model?" I believe
the general meaning of the term is: setting a good example for others,
especially the young, to follow. Something good, that a young person can
aspire to be like. Again, I am an American, so I'll speak about America.
I've done it for years, and still do. I listen to what people say, and
look at their actions...what they do. Example: Politicians running for
the upcoming elections. All they talk about is how lowdown and dirty
their opponent is; both sides, hurdling mud, with news reporters,
depending on who they like, acting like a relay station to hurdle it
farther and wider. These are the adults...role models...that's suppose
to be setting examples for young people to follow. And, they are trying
desperately to make a large number of people believe their lie but not
the other person's lie. The sad part is, Americans, old and young,
believe in lying. The bigger the lie, the wider it spread, the more
popular the liar become. And, early in November 2014, liars will go to
state and national offices. My question is: What is this doing to young
people around the world. How many young people; since technology turn
local stages into international ones; will pattern their lives after
lying politicians? Also, can politicians really see themselves as being
"Role Models" for anyone? Better yet, does any American believe that
putting a liar in office, adds truth to American politics? I've said it
many, many times; I'm saying it here: the office doesn't remake the
person, it becomes what's put in it. As the saying went during my
computer programming years; "garbage in, garbage out."
Our young children need to be taught truth; because that is
the only way they will grow up to be the type individuals that will deal
with their worldwide audiences in truth and sincerity. Ladies and
gentlemen, The people of the world, no longer just listen to what you
say; they watch what you do. Words have become nothing more than hot
breezes in a desert trek. Only what you do will, or will not, be seen as
Role Models? Well, let that be truth and facts in the
educational systems in America. Children need to know the truth about
other nations they will eventually deal with, politically, and
otherwise. They need to know and appreciate different cultures, rather
than trying to make theirs superior, and proper. The term, "American
Way" which is superiority/inferiority, should be deleted from the
educational system in America, and replaced with truth, respect, love,
understanding, and cooperation, because there will never be peace among
us until we all respect each other' culture. Every culture on earth,
believe theirs are just as important as any other. And, in reality; are.
Role models are good; but I'll take an educational system of truth
over it any day.
Thanks for stopping by. By the grace of God,
I'll be back with you next week.
